Chinchou, the Angler Pokémon, have the ability to conduct electrical currents from their two tentacles which flow positive from one end and negative to the other. Chinchou can also communicate underwater by flashing its tentacles.

I love Chinchou (and Lanturn), it’s one of my fave Pokemon. I like its typing, Water/electric with Volt Absorb, which nullifies Water’s weakness to Electricity. Though its other ability, Illuminate, is pretty useless.
Chinchou’s eyes have plus signs on them, which I think makes them look blinded, haha.
Like Lanturn, Chinchou has lots of HP, and is quite fast, though its speed doesn’t change when it evolves into Lanturn.
